I am doing a princess theme for DD's 3rd birthday. I want to do cupcakes and a friend mentioned she had seen something where they had arranged the cupcakes to form a ball skirt. I can't find a picture of anything like that, but I think it sounds cute. Can anyone point me to a pic or help me figure out how to do it? I am a cake novice--and DD has multiple food allergies, so we are pretty limited on how we can decorate and what ingredients we can use. Thanks for your help!
I can't help you, but I'm marking this cause I think it's sounds neat ! Hope someone can help you out!
How about doing a modified cupcake bouquet using mini cupcakes and a cone shaped styrofoam base. You would add the cupcakes down the side of the cone. You might have to cut down the top for more surface space to put the body (if it's to be a complete princess), or for the bodice top of the skirt. This does sound like something I would like to see done. Good luck.
Here are some pics of what I think you were asking.
I t hink you could make the top out of gumpaste or fondant and then drape fondant over the cupcake part.
wow. those cuppies are cute. kinda time consuming, but cute.
pg. 100 of the book "hello, cupcake" has party princess cupcakes...very cute! A book worth buying
Those cupcakes are adorable, but definitely out of my league at the moment, and I got the Hello Cupcake book. It is adorable too, but it uses so many ingredients that we could never use (DD can't have milk, soy, egg, corn, artificial colorings, or nuts), so that book only had a couple of things we could do.
What I was envisioning--and I think I have seen it before, but have no idea where--was like a sheet cake, but done with cupcakes. I think maybe the princess head/torso was artwork (not cupcakes), but then the cupcakes were decorated to make a pattern of the skirt. Does that make sense at all? It would be a big flat board with cupcakes on it.
http://members.nuvox.net/~zt.proicer/message/saved/cupcakes.html do you mean a cupcake cake?
Sort of. Laid out like that in the shape of a skirt, but not iced all together. The cupcakes were still separate, but they formed the shape of a skirt. Sorry, I was hoping this was an easy thing to find, but apparently not!
can't find anything like u describe when I search the internet sorry
here are some very cute cupcake cakes from other members that u might be interested in (i don't think that allergies would play a roll like w/ the "hello, cupcake" ones). I also found a cupcake cake made in the shape of a crown on another site, if ur interested.
Good luck in your search
I think I found what you were looking for. I just posted a thread about a website I found with really cool cupcake stands. Here is the link...
You have to click on "click occasion" then "cupcake trees". The cupcake stand I am talking about is #37.
I can't direct link you, because the site is flash.
